Why Tungsten?

August 17, 2020

If you haven’t heard of tungsten, we’re excited to introduce it to you!


One of the most fascinating aspects of being a jeweller is watching as styles change, trends emerge and what was once considered traditional transition into something new and different. Men’s jewellery is the perfect example of all of the above. Options have opened up beyond the traditional plain gold or white band, and while the choice is still there for the traditionalists, those with an artistic flair are being rewarded with options such as tungsten.

If you haven’t heard of tungsten, we’re excited to introduce it to you. Tungsten rings are the perfect option for a men’s wedding band or as a ring to celebrate a special occasion. Heck! You could even buy one for yourself just because!

Wondering why we love tungsten so much? Here are our favourite features of this modern metal.

Durable and Strong

One of Tungsten’s shining qualities is just that… it holds its shine. The finish will never dull or fade over time. This, along with its its strength and durability makes it an appealing choice. Compared to gold, tungsten is 10 times stronger and unlike other metals, it’s scratch-resistant and won’t bend easily making it a great choice for those who work with their hands.

Unique and Modern Look

While women’s rings come in a variety of shapes, designs, colours and more, men have not always had the same myriad of options. Luckily, with tungsten, there’s a variety of unique and artistic looks to choose from. Consider soft satin, brushed, polished, and more for your finish. Gunmetal grey, light or dark silver, black plated and so on for the colour and a variety of inlays such as carbon fibre, diamonds and even elk antler! If you’re looking to add a personalized touch, we can show you options to add to your ring for a little extra flair!


No excuses for leaving that ring at home ? If you have an allergy to certain types of metals, tungsten is the ring for you as it’s hypoallergenic! You won’t have to worry about breaking out in hives or a rash while wearing you ring.


While a high-quality ring with a contemporary look and feel can become quite expensive, this is not the case with tungsten. Prices generally range from $150 – $400 (depending on any additions made and the style) allowing you to find a ring that you’ll love and cherish that doesn’t break the bank.
